SHAH ALAM: The Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ) is planning to develop its three thriving townships – Bandar Utama, Mutiara Damansara and Damansara Perdana – into an international tourism hub.

“This cluster of townships already exhibit the image and character of a tourist city, complete with commercial centre infrastructure, shopping complexes, recreation spots and international hotels to attract tourists,” MBPJ noted in its Special Area Draft Plan 2020.

Popular landmarks already in the 33.8-hectare vicinity include 1Utama Shopping Centre, One World Hotel, The Curve, Royale Bintang Hotel and PJ Trade Centre, among others.

The city council proposes to develop Bandar Utama, one of the most trendy commercial hubs in Petaling Jaya, into an Entertainment City with indoor and outdoor recreational facilities.

In line with that, MBPJ plans to upgrade the 4.2-hectare Central Park Avenue and construct sheltered pedestrian walkways connecting Dataran Bandar Utama to bus stations.

MBPJ also intends to turn Mutiara Damansara into a City of Colours and Damansara Perdana into a City of Shape through unique street features, building facades and soft landscaping.

The entrance to Mutiara Damansara Recreational Park will be repaired and upgraded.

In addition, MBPJ will connect the three townships via community bus services and sidewalks.

A pedestrian bridge will be built from Ikano Power Centre in Mutiara Damansara across Persiaran Surian to Bandar Utama.

The city council also plans to upgrade the pedestrian walkways from Mutiara Damansara to Damansara Perdana and Pelangi Damansara.

The Special Area Draft Plan 2020 says the area’s tourism potential can be increased with an integrated public transport system and better urban design and facilities.

The draft plan includes several proposals to redevelop 11 major areas, especially new townships, in the city to make it more liveable and pedestrian-friendly

The city council has also suggested having water taxis, including boats and hovercrafts, to ferry passengers along five rivers in Petaling Jaya to reduce traffic snarls and pollution.

The public can view the plan at MBPJ’s headquarters until Feb 28 and residents have until Feb 29 to object to any proposal.

A public hearing will be held once the city council’s Planning Department has compiled the public’s responses.

The people’s feedback will be presented to the state planning committee before the Special Area Draft Plan is gazetted.

Residents can get the plan at MBPJ’s Planning Department, 2nd Floor, Jalan Yong Shook Lin or call 03-7956 3544 ext 353/411 (Faiwos Abdul Hamid or Nurli Darni Musleh).

Promoter in Jusco One U, sales girls are busy reading books (instead of serving customers) and sitting on the chairs meant for customers.

Neo Damansara and Empire look better than the rendering actually.

Looking at the progress, Point92 will be completed by April.

Nice shot!!

I think it will be ready by April. Scheduled completion date would be June 2012.


This Point92 building might be renamed to its owner's name.

JAKS gets RM252m construction job

PETALING JAYA: JAKS Resources Bhd has accepted a RM252mil contract for the construction of five blocks of 15-storey commercial buildings and four levels of basement carparks in Ara Damansara.

JAKS told Bursa Malaysia that its subsidiary JAKS Sdn Bhd had yesterday accepted the letter of award from KH Chew Architect, on behalf of MNH Global Assets Management Sdn Bhd.

Works are to be completed by Aug 31, 2013.

MNH Global is wholly owned by Island Circle Development (M) Sdn Bhd, a major shareholder of JAKS Island Circle Sdn Bhd, which in turn is 51%-owned by JAKS.

Wow, finally Tangs will open its doors in two short days time... Now just waiting for Isetan to commence business, which means we don't need to go to KL for these two upper-level brands anymore!

Speaking of Isetan, I wonder whether the high-end in-store outlets similar to the ones in Gardens and KLCC will be opened in the 1U store or not? If I'm not wrong, KLCC has Christian Dior and Ralph Lauren, whilst Burberry is one of them in Gardens...

Also, I noticed that Polo Ralph Lauren has also moved out of 1 Utama's Level 1 (Ground Floor), am I correct? Together with the former FCUK space, there are two vacant lots now... Wondering who will take these premises? To be honest, I'm hoping for some upmarket brand to occupy these prime Level 1 spaces, e.g. Burberry / Emporio Armani / Juicy Couture!
